24/7 Sports national analyst Jerry Meyer updated his Crystal Ball predictions Saturday, and he gave Kentucky fans plenty to be happy about.
Meyer — one of the national analysts this site trusts the most — has moved Indianapolis forward Trey Lyles and California forward Stanley Johnson into the UK category among recruits in the class of 2014.
In all, Meyer predicts that the Cats will get point guard Emmanuel Mudiay, shooting guard Rashad Vaughn, Johnson and Lyles to pair with New Jersey center Karl Towns, who committed to Kentucky last year.
That haul would give UK a premier prospect at all five positions and would almost certainly be enough to give John Calipari a sixth consecutive No. 1 recruiting class at Kentucky. All five of those players are considered top-10 overall recruits.
Of course, there’s a long way to go in the process. Predictions change all the time, and there are plenty of major programs squarely in the mix for UK’s top targets.
